Design Trends from Summer Market 2018
Want to know what the hottest design trends are? The ones that only interior designers know? Check out what I saw at Las Vegas Summer Market 2018! It can be over whelming to walk around all the showrooms, but here’s what I found in several of the top showrooms.
These were everywhere! And on several different types of furniture. The look is a metal ring around a solid support base. It has a glam-lounge look and has roots in the Art Deco period. Although, the look can also be found during the “mod” period of the 1960’s. The current interpretation can be found in various styles, including a more industrial/rustic style, like the tables below.
I found a ton of gold toned bases, but I also saw several options in silver. The most common furniture pieces with this type of base were accent/lounge chairs, but I saw quite a few cocktail tables with this type of base as well.
Tufted headboards have been all the rage for several years now, but we’re starting to see the tide shift a little bit on this staple item. Designers started talking about channel tufting last fall and I started suggesting it as a contemporary alternative for clients that want an upholstered headboard, but a sleeker look. Both horizontal and vertical orientations of this look are popular. It really depends on the look you want. Horizontal tufting creates a great stable, masculine line, while vertical tufting will help elongate the space.
Again, this look gives a nod to the past. Like the pedestal look, channel tufting has roots in Art Deco style. We revisited this look again in the 1980’s. So, if you’re looking to create a great look from either style period, you will want to consider channel tufting.
This is another “vintage” inspired item and probably my favorite. It has such a Hollywood Regency vibe. This pleated look would be great in a really feminine space or paired with some great retro tables. This blush pink chair just made me wish I had a client for whom I could specify it. I could totally see a pair of these classic barrel chair next to a marble and gold cocktail table with some black and white prints of classic movie stars like Katherine Hepburn or Cary Grant. So chic.
